Raiders of the Lost Moonpies

When I was younger, my father and I were playing an old Sierra adventure game called Police Quest II. It was one of those games with graphics and text, where you had to type in certain actions like "Talk to woman", "Get bucket", "Use blow-up doll", etc.

Anyway, I was in this one part of the game where I was interrogating a suspect and I was typing, "Ask about knife", "Ask about killer", "Ask about prison", etc.

My father -- out of the clear blue -- says, "Ask about moonpies."

"What are moonpies?" I asked.

And thus the saga began.

It has been a running family joke ever since... something that my father and I have bonded over.

When I was a sophomore in high school... TEN YEARS AGO... I wrote a science fiction story called "Raiders of the Lost Moonpies". It was intended to be a series... but it never took off. Now that I'm so much older and wiser (obviously from eating moonpies), maybe I should try rewriting the stories. Might be fun.

Actually... I must confess something. I don't eat moonpies. I worship them.

That is all.
